PMQs 29th July 2011: Ed Miliband And David Cameron Clash

PMQs: Ed Miliband and David Cameron face off across the dispatch box

David Cameron has attacked Ed Miliband for being “in the pocket of the unions” ahead of tomorrow’s public sector strikes.

The Prime Minister offered his backing to teachers who had decided not to go on strike tomorrow and insisted the Government's public sector pensions proposals were fair. He told the Commons: "I would congratulate them for doing the right thing and for keeping their school open, I don’t believe there is any case for industrial action tomorrow, not least because talks are still ongoing. Now, it is only a minority of unions who have taken the decision to go ahead and strike."

The Prime Minister was interrupted by the speaker twice during the proceedings.
